Kajiado Water Project

Located in the southern part of Kenya, Kajiado County is home to a Maasai community of approximately 200,000. However, the area lacks water sources that can provide the quality and quantity needed to support the local population. This project will also include elements tied to girls’ empowerment, education, and sustainability. Our partner non-profit organization, Maasai Indigenous Projects (MIP), originated and operates in the Kajiado communities in Kenya. Together, we are moving forward with operations of the Kajiado Water Project starting in January 2019.
